About

The Equity Stock Markets - Concepts, Instruments, Risks and Derivatives Certificate from EdX is offered in partnership with Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore - IIMBx and is part of the Professional Certificate Risk Management in Banking and Financial Markets.

In this course, part of the Professional Certificate program ‘Risk Management in Banking and Financial Markets’, we will understand the underlying theories as well as the structure and functioning of equity stock markets, how to identify, assess and manage the heightened level of risks in equity stock markets and the role of derivative instruments in hedging those risks. 

Equity stock markets are perhaps the most vibrant and ‘visible’ of all financial markets around the world by virtue of the broad spectrum of participants and the volume and value of transactions traded in these markets. Given that dominant presence, assessing and managing risks in equity stock markets have also become increasingly sophisticated over the years, thanks to several theories such as portfolio theory, CAPM, sharp ratio, etc. that have evolved and matured over the years. This course will address in great detail those theories and how risks are managed/mitigated in equity stock markets around the world.

This course will also address the structure and functioning of private equity markets and also provide an overview of a related topic, venture capital financing.
